Equity reporter.

Markets hit a high last week, but felt today.

What information were investors trying to digest?

Quickly site very positive -- we saw a very positive report as well as the lowest unemployment rate in several years.

But they are already looking to the next event on the horizon.

Jpmorgan and coleman have moved their forecasts for the next rate hike -- and goldman have moved their forecasts up for the next rate hike.

You spoke to president and seo of freshmen in -- and cio of frost and investments in san antonio.

He said that investors expect the rates to go up.

Is that the expectation on the street?

Finally, earning season kicks off on tuesday.

How much strength doing that to see?

Those are the ones expected to outperform.

Earnings are not expected to do quite as well.
